WHAT IT TASTES LIKE: Bloomy blue rind, mousse-like texture, lemony-fresh flavour and a hint of goat.

WHERE IT COMES FROM: Dorstone is made by Charlie Westhead and Haydn Roberts in – where else – the village of Dorstone in Herefordshire, and its a sister cheese to the well-known Ragstone. Soft, creamy, surface ripened Dorstone is rolled in edible ash before being left to ripen for 2-3 weeks, which develops its wrinkled, blue/grey rind scattered with white downy mould, giving the cheese a savoury, nutty edge. In 2013, Dorstone won a gold medal at the French Cheese Awards.
